Sergei Skorobogatov

Dr Sergei Skorobogatov is a Senior Research Associate at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory and a member of the Security Group. He has background in chemistry, physics and electronics, he received Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge in 2005. His research interests include hardware security analysis of smartcards, microcontrollers, FPGAs and ASICs. He pioneered optical fault injection attacks in 2001, which have influenced major rethink within semiconductor industry on the security protection of ICs and forced introduction of new evaluation procedures and countermeasures. His latest research involved substantial improving of side-channel attacks and optical fault injection attacks. He is a member of Program Committees in several major worldwide conferences on hardware security of semiconductor chips such as CHES, HOST, FDTC, COSADE and CARDIS.
